I went back to full suspension.
I went from a Titus RacerX (26" version) to a fully rigid single-speed. Loved that, but then bought a Specialized Stumpjumper EVO R (carbon frame, 1x10 drive train, weighed about 21.5 lbs), and thought that was the best bike for the Boise foothills.
Borrowed a buddy's full-suspender on a quick lunch-time ride, and said "Oh yeah! THAT is what it used to feel like on a suspended bike!", and bought a Salsa Spearfish 2 the next weekend.
Sold the single-speed, and think I am gonna sell the Stumpjumper. I just don't see any scenario where I WON'T choose the Salsa.
It is a smile factory....
(To do what I was supposed to in this thread, I bought a RockShox Monarch RT shock, and them some other stuff to bolt that shock to.
